Marry Me?

How’s this for a proposal? Robert Uhlman, a 2012 graduate of Washington and Lee University, asked his girlfriend, Samantha, to marry him in a production worthy of a Broadway show.

He uploaded his flash mob proposal (in Times Square) to YouTube and wrote, “An amazing amount of legwork and the help of many people combined to make this proposal a reality, and she said yes!”

Robert, who is an account executive at Practising Law Institute in New York City, also had the support of classmate John Grigsby ’12, who “jumps in near the final chorus to dance a bit with me before stepping back.”
